It is possible to be smart, successful and beautiful! These women prove it! I’ve searched within my circle for moms with successful online businesses that also happen to have really great hair! Like other moms, they are super busy.  As business owners, they also have to juggle the endless list of behind the scene tasks while managing home life.  It’s not easy but these ladies make no excuses.  They understand that how they look represents their business and so they make the effort to look their best, starting with their hair!

(SIDE NOTE: I have to share that as I am looking on Sarah’s site for a picture of her hair to include in this post, I came across her considering a total chop of her hair.  Total, like pixi-ish.  The reason?  “It’s just lately I feel like my hair has its own online persona or something. I’m over it.” Well Sarah, I hope you are not offended that I am including you on this post!  Long or short, I’d still feature you because regardless of length, you’ll always have healthy, gorgeous hair and you are a smart business woman….so there. )
